Permanent Exhibit

Legacies from the Victorian era have survived since the days of Queen Victoria, particularly during the days Hinsdale was established in 1864. Journey our permanent exhibit space at the Hinsdale History Museum to learn how founding Hinsdaleans and early residents lived and made sense of their everyday lives.
On display are hundreds of objects from Hinsdale residents and interior decor--original and recreated--guiding visitors through the lives of 19th century village citizens. This exhibit space shares what it means to live in a growing local community in the larger context of the Victorian era of the United States.
